Info from the GRWorld.org web site:
Gender Equity and Reconciliation International (GERI) convenes groups of women and men, and people of all gender identities and expressions, to work closely together—not only to heal from the past, but also to begin re-writing the future of gender relations in the human family.
How do we begin? By telling our stories. Because untold stories keep oppression invisible. We create a safe, courageous, and mutually compassionate space, in which our truths and stories come forward, without shame or blame.
The GERI process brings us into in a unique space of deep mutual awareness and compassion, and from there leads us skillfully out of our collective past, and ushers in a new shared group space of newfound oneness—as rare as it is precious—where a collective alchemy begins to work in and through the group. Freed from the past, we then begin to embrace and live into an auspicious loving interconnection that fosters “beloved community.”
GERI provides spaces all over the world, in which this transformational alchemy takes place. The ravages of gender oppression have afflicted every human civilization across the globe, in every culture, race, and continent, since time immemorial. But this does not have to continue. We can change it, and we ARE changing it, and replacing it with beloved community.
Do you want to be part of this? You are warmly welcome. The human spirit is greater than any and all obstacles. Together, we are re-writing the future of humanity, centered in the heart. Please join us.
